  • 1 cup yellow onion diced
  • 1 cup Pepperoni diced
  • 1 garlic clove minced
  • ½ cup Pecorino cheese grated
  • 5 basil leaves torn
  • Salt and black pepper to taste


  1. 1
    Pour the whole box of pasta into a large skillet (approximately 12 inches in diameter).  Pour 1 1/2 cups of cold water and chicken broth into the pan, ensuring that the liquid covers the pasta.  Add onion.

  2. 2

    Turn on the burner to high, then set your timer for 10 minutes.  Optional:  add about 1/2 teaspoon of salt to taste. 

  3. 3
    Cook on high, stirring regularly, until most of the water is absorbed, about 10 minutes but may vary by stove. 

  4. 4
    When pasta is almost done, add pepperoni and garlic; gently cook through.  Remove from heat and stir in cheese and basil.  Serve immediately.
